Two traffic lights facing wrong direction
Reported via mobile in the Damage - pole leaning / equipment detached from pole/facing the wrong direction category anonymously at 18:19, Tuesday 29 March 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3424887.
Two traffic lights on the A41 (at the crossroads with Broadfields Avenue HA8) coming east to west have been knocked or spun and are facing the wrong direction including the filter light turning people right onto the north side of Broadfields Avenue and one of the lights which should be pointing people forwards towards the west. Both are on the same pole and pointing odd angles which the traffic which is supposed to use them can’t actually see. There seem to now regularly be problems with the lights at this junction spinning around and this needs to also therefore be looked at as an ongoing issue, not just with regard to fixing them today. Thanks.
